WOMEN, WHY FORSAKE THE WOMAN?

My eyes frantically sidle
Over the horizon

In search of hope
In search of the support

The one which was with Charlotte
The one which gave the Past life

The advocates
The fighters

Daughters of the land
Yesterday fought for Yesterday

Daughters of the land
Today stand akimbo

Daughters of the land
Sit on the fence when trouble brews

When Today is in dire straits
When Today is being persecuted

Jean is jilted
Jilted by her sisters

Sisters who fought for Charlotte
Same sisters are quiet for Jean

When Charlotte was touched
Queen mothers

Women’s groups
Human rights activists

Looked high up
Into the skies above

Cried out to the Man up there
To deal with the attacker

Jean is attacked
Jean is being roasted

Guillotine she stands
Ready to be devoured

By scavengers
On the altar of politics

And sadly enough
She is left in the lurch

By her own kind
By her own sisters

Jean deserves
Treats of Yesterday

Today needs to be protected
Lest Tomorrow may spin out of control
